Register for Powerful Partnerships: Increasing Access to Arts Education Through Collaboration

Feb 27, 2012
New York, NY

The National Guild will present Powerful Partnerships: Increasing Access to Arts Education Through Collaboration on April 19 & 20, 2012, in New York, NY. The Institute is designed and facilitated by Partners in Performance and hosted by Roundabout Theatre Company.

This two-day, highly engaging hands-on workshop will explore how nonprofit arts education providers can more deeply engage their communities; gain access to a broader array of resources including expertise, credibility and funding; and increase sustainability through  collaboration.

Collaborating effectively often requires the acquisition of new skills and a shift in perspective. The 2012 Powerful Partnerships Institute is designed to help arts education providers:

  • Identify their organization's core institutional and programmatic assets
  • Identify potential partners (other organizations, funders, advocates, etc.) with whom they can work to 'co-create' sustainable programs
  • Understand what is required to  achieve sustainable collaborations (e.g., sharing authority, trusting others)
  • Understand common challenges to collaboration and learn methods of overcoming them
  • Capitalize on "lessons learned" through  prior  experiences, and
  • Develop a "collaboration action plan" for execution upon returning home.

Read faculty bios.

To maximize the learning experience, Powerful Partnerships is designed for teams of three or more. Each team will receive a set of tools for assessing institutional and programmatic assets, identifying prospective partners and "lessons learned," planning collaborations, and developing an action plan.
